top 2 things

new people i met will always ask me.

* huh? you have 3 kids? — with my body which looks like it spit out a dozen kids, i could not understand why they would ask me that question. or maybe they just want to flatter me.

* what is your work? — i’m a mother. pseudo mother. if you have a job or doing something that is not earning ‘money,’ it’s hard to explain that you are really ‘working’ on something. it makes me think that the easiest way to explain things is through money.
